August 1, 2015, Countryside, IL – Nyco Products Company employees teamed up to clean and prepare classrooms for the school start at the Helping Hand School for Children with Autism in Countryside, a facility of the Helping Hand Center. The volunteer community service event took place on August 1, 2015.
Nyco took a team of 15 employees and family members to the Helping Hand Center school facility along with cleaning products, supplies, and equipment needed to wash windows and walls, disinfect desks and tables, and more. According to Carolyn Kline, Director of Community Outreach for Helping Hand Center, “We are grateful for the Nyco volunteers and their expertise to deep clean and sanitize the classrooms, sensory rooms and common areas before the new school session begins. We are so appreciative of the support that Nyco is giving us.”
